Not only is this great film Blancanieveswritten and directed by Pablo Berger (Torremolinos), international sales agent 6 Sales' Marina Fuentes♀,  opening theatrically in the U.S. on March 29 thanks to Cohen Media, it is the film we the jury at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival awarded  the Cine Latino Award  AND it has swept the Goyas (the Academy Award equivalent) in Spain.  This film which I previously blogged about, is the film which took so long to make that The Artist, took its place in our own Academy Awards last year.   Had this one only come first ... this is the real winner.  It is a fairytale and much more; it depicts Spain and Seville in the time of fascism and leaves a tear upon the place.

Blancanieves, a re-working of the Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale "Snow White," is a breathtakingly beautiful film and a uniquely spirited homage to the black-and-white Golden Age of Europe's silent cinema. Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, Berger's Snow White is Carmen (Macarena García), the daughter of a famous bull fighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna (Maribel Verdú). She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.
